The showhorse of House Merlet.  
 
Traditionally, the Merlet family were wine growers, supplying grapes to winemakers across the region. But in 1850, Firmin Merlet assembled the first pot still near the picturesque town of Saint Sauvant, and started transforming their surplus grape inventory into fine eau-de-vie for famous Cognac producer Hennessy. Gradually, they acquired their own ageing barrels, and then started bottling, thus becoming an independent producer. 
 
It’s still an “all in the family” operation. Gilles Merlet took over the reins forty years ago, streamlining, modernizing, and expanding their product lines. Now joined by his sons, Pierre and Luc, they produce their famous Cognac, Pineau des Charentes, Brandies and Liqueurs. Viva le Merlet!
 
We do not have to tell you that there are no artificial colours or flavours to speak of, or that this Cognac comes from a limited terroir in France. We don’t have to tell you that it is aged exclusively in Limousin oak, and has no added sugars, alcohols, or juices. Why? Because the label says “Cognac,” that’s why. We do not have to tell you that Merlet VS Cognac is a blend of fine vintage Cognacs that are at least two years old … that’s what the VS stands for. 
 
Cognac is one of the most strictly legally defined and regulated spirits in the world. The French take it VERY seriously. Every attribute is scrutinized; every letter on the label has meaning. So step up and buy with confidence. And while you are at it, whip up the signature Merlet Cognac cocktail—The Horse’s Neck—with one part Merlet VS, two parts Ginger Ale, a dash of Angostura bitters and orange zest. Tasty

What does Merlet VS Cognac taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Merlet VS Cognac and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin, but excellent for distillation and aging.

This is the first cognac I’ve ever tried. Smooth, clean flavor.
 
Scott
Scott,
This is the first cognac I've ever had. It's intriguing enough I'm looking forward to trying more. This one lacks a sophistical flavor profile, but the subtle fruit makes it enjoyable. After several sips of it neat I added a small ice cube which really softened the slight bitterness. Far more drinkable that way IMO (the water helped pronounced the "baking spice" flavor mentioned in the flavor spiral).

Charles,
Zesty is a good description, per the tasting spiral, but that’s about it. Very little flavor which is just a hint of fruit
 
Lorenzo
Lorenzo,
This was a very nice VS. Lite, smooth, picked up a lot more of the orange fruity zest as described. Great neat.
